About the commercial re-roof permits and inspections program
We developed the program with Associated Roofing Contractors. The program is optional. Contractors may also decide to get permits and inspections using our standard processes. Also:
- Commercial roofing contractors must register with us to use the program.
- Contractors must agree to the conditions of the agreement.
- You can pre-purchase up to five (5) commercial reroof permits.

Fees for commercial reroof permits
Please read the Building and Other Permits fee schedule for the permit cost. You can use Ctrl +F to find "roof."
Step 2: Apply for a commercial reroof permit
Please fill out all of the fields on the registration and agreement form. You must include the CCB (Construction Contractors Board) number and City of Portland Business License Number.
Complete and sign the form, then scan the form and email it to the Commercial Reroofs team for review. You'll get a book of reroof labels returned to you. Our inspections team will provide you with an IVR number to use for Inspections.
You can also set up an appointment to pick up forms or drop off forms in person. Or, please call us and we will work with you.
Step 3: Get your commercial reroof labels
After you pay the fees, Permitting Services will set up your label or labels. Then:
- We'll send you an invoice (we'll include payment options).
- After you pay your invoice, we'll mail you the labels.
- Fill out your commercial reroof labels completely, then email the labels to Inspections.
- We'll add the site information to your labels.
Please contact the Commercial Reroof Inspections team for questions about your reroof labels.
Step 4: Schedule a commercial reroof inspection
We'll email you an IVR number you can use to set up an inspection. Use the Requests for Inspection phone number and your IVR number to book your reroof inspection.
